OpenSea froze Bored Ape NFTs after the owner reported the theft. A total of 15 Bored Apes and Mutant Apes were played.
NFT marketplace OpenSea has frozen $2.2 million worth of Bored Ape NFTs after they were reported stolen. There is a warning that says NFTs in the market are now “reported for suspicious activity”. The trading of such items has therefore been suspended.
A total of 15 NFTs were stolen. Todd Kramer, owner of NFTs, described the incident as “arguably the worst night of his life” and expressed hope that it would be resolved.
Does OpenSea Have Security Issues?
To some, the freezes are “anti-crypto” and pose a security challenge for OpenSea. For this reason, many criticisms were directed to the platform on Crypto Twitter.
OpenSea is the most popular NFT platform in the market, attracting hundreds of thousands of users and heavy trading volume. Therefore, theft of these NFTs has raised concerns about the security of other NFTs on the platform. There is little information on exactly how NFTs are stolen and there is no official update yet from the platform.
